Reviewer lauds 'Butterfly'Livermore Valley Executive Director Sara Nealy congratulated Melody King on opening night of "Madama Butterfly" Saturday, where it played to an almost full house in Livermore's Bankhead Theater. King gave a moving portrayal of Cio-Cio San in the classic opera.
"Livermore Valley Opera has taken the care to stage Puccini's 'Madama Butterfly' with a cast that does the opera and the company proud," wrote a reviewer for the San Francisco Classical Voice (www.sfcv.org).
The opera continues this weekend at 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday, with the matinee including an ice cream social during intermission. For an interview with the director or ticket information, call -373-6800 or visit www.livermorevalleyopera.com.
